Arboricultural Impact Assessments

What is an Arboricultural Impact Assessment and Why Do I Need One?

An Arboricultural Impact Assessment Report is an important part of any development application. This report determines how a tree may be impacted by the proposed development and includes recommendations for managing this.

If you have trees marked on your survey drawings, you will need to hire an AQF Level 5 Arborist to produce an Arboricultural Impact Assessment Report. Without this report, your development application may be declined, resulting in delays and frustration.

Why are Arboricultural Impact Assessments Required?

Arboricultural Impact Assessment Reports are important because they ensure that trees are protected during any development. The Tree Protection Zone (TPZ) is an area around a tree that needs to be kept clear of any potential damage during construction. An Arboricultural Impact Assessment Report will help to identify the TPZ and recommend measures to protect the tree.

If you are planning any development near trees, it is important to engage an Arboricultural Impact Assessment expert to avoid any damage to the trees or their root systems. Arboricultural Impact Assessments may seem like an added expense, but in the long run, they can save you time and money. Damage to a tree can often be irreparable, so it is best to take all necessary precautions from the start.

Who can write Arboricultural Impact Assessments?

Arboricultural Impact Assessments (AIA) are an important part of the tree protection process. Councils require a minimum AQF Level 5 arborist to complete these reports, meaning that the arborist has achieved a diploma and is skilled in tree biology and physiology.

All of Canopy Consulting's arborists have achieved this qualification, so you can rest assured that your objectives will be met and the application and approval process will be quick and easy. We have extensive experience in completing AIA's for both residential and commercial developments, so you can be confident that we know what we're doing.
